So lately as I bash college more and more, I’ve had two people preach to me about the importance of college. The first was my new fulltime supervisor at work who acts as if he drank an entire pot of coffee before coming in. He stressed to me how much he wants nothing more than to see all of us leave UPS with a piece of paper (referring to a degree of course) because it holds that much value. I couldn’t help but tell myself that while he’s telling me all of this, that fancy Apple Watch he kept glancing at was from a company founded by a college dropout.
As the fine young gentleman I am, I politely listened and pondered later what he told me. I’ve convinced myself college isn’t for me. Yes the college life is cool but having to go through the course’s is what I hate. I know I know, its like that for everyone but in my situation I feel that this isn’t for me. I’m going to put my mind and body through all of this strenuous effort to get a degree that will only help me get my “pinky toe” into the door as my buddy Daimont would say.
The more I ponder my presents in post secondary education, the more I get the “College Talk.” Just today as my mother and I were paying for the brand new tires on our car, the lead mechanic gave me a similar speech about college. I don’t know if its just me but I think theres some force that is trying to keep me in college. I don’t understand why because I have such radical views towards college.
I haven’t quit yet and I’m digging the perks of being student. But going back to my College discussion, I honestly think the only way to make it in life is if you start a business. Now I know, the first thought that comes to mind is that you need to go to school. Yes that is an option but what most people don’t realize is that there are seminars and classes nation wide that is similar to college course’s. You’ll be out of $800 but in the long run you will be able to obtain the knowledge needed to run and operate a business.
Whatever it is I’m trying to do, I need to figure it out quick because I am 21 and I’ll be 30 before we all know it.
Its everywhere! No matter what website you sign on to now they have added the feature that everyone loves and uses on facebook and twitter every day! The status update or the micro blog. The things that people do every time they log on to there facebook or get on twitter. It seems to be popping up everywhere! One website that I didn’t ecpect it to be on was IMVU, a graphical instant messaging client created by IMVU Inc. I was stunned to see it there, they call it “pulse”. Now I’m just waiting for youtube to get one. It seems like the new thing that everyone loves to do. I love to do it! Just look at the side of my blog and you will see my status updates. I’m not made at it kind of annoyed on how every site wants to do it. Why can’t they sit down and come up with something that will beat there competitor instead of joining with them. I don’t, I own a very un-successful blog and trippen over the fact of status updates. Comment your opinion.
So on Tuesday the 17th was the first day of school in Jefferson county. We came back to the same thing thinking it was going to be a little different from last year. At least it felt the same to me. The first day went well, exploding monster cans and finally getting to talk to some of my friends that I haven’t seen all summer. The first week went by smooth and without any troubles for real. At least not any major troubles. Its only the beginning, lets see what Southern High has in store for us.
I still find it kind of hard to believe that I’m almost out of school. It seems like it was just yesterday that I was in head start. now I am 2 years away from leaving high school and entering the real world I just don’t know what to do with my self. Its kind of weird, exciting and a bit nervous because I’m only 16 and haven’t figured out what to do with my life yet. My family is trying there hardest to get me to think but just like any old teenager I rebel against them and don’t listen to a word that they got to say. I have been thinking for the longest though on what to do in my life. I have many goals that I would like to peruse but I haven’t taken the initial plan to go and do it. Well except for one but I don’t feel like going into to much detail on that matter. Don’t be trippen and think that its some weird job that I have in plan but no, when everything falls into plan you’ll see. I guess, thats if you pay any attention to what I post up for these people to see.
In school though they do come to us a lot and talk to us about college and stuff but it seem to be over whelming and time consuming to sit down and pick a college and how your gonna pay to get in. I don’t really see the need for college. Its only for those people who want to work in a big office tower and get told what to do by this big fat man who site behind his desk all day eating doughnuts, or is that was police officers do? Well it dosent matter, its some stuck up back stabbing boss. Then on top of that your stuck in a cubical surrounded by more back stabbing employees who suck up to there boss and will do anything to annihilate you and get you fired. Sounds bad right? It is. My view on life is different from most peoples because I see things differently then others do. Its like someone is looking at an apple and when I walk up I see an orange. I think I gave a bad example, how about you come up with one and I keep talking.
Anyways it seem like I have so many ideas and opportunities at hand but don’t take any action. 2 years of high school and where have I gone, no where. Most teens my age got a job. I got a part time job with my dad. Low pay ain’t kickin it in my world.
As I go on and on I find it useless that I keep going about this problem and think I should stop here. Unless you can comment on this post and give me a heads up on what I should do, feel free. Until then, I’ll be waiting on that post.
